    What Should I Do With Carnival Fish??

    What substrate would be best? I've heard good things about sand, but I read some another articles/forum threads that talked about goldfish eating it and it being dangerous. I've heard good things about larger gravel, but I don't want to take the risk that my goldfish might eat it. I really want...

    10 Gallon Tank Please Help I Have Tried Everything

    I don't believe that the splitting idea would work because, in my opinion, the two goldfish would need at least 100 gallons of it, and the turtle can't exactly survive in 25 gallons. I recommend buying a 110 Tuff Stuff/Rubbermaid stock tank or the MinI Blue Intex kiddie pool for housing on the...

    What Should I Do With Carnival Fish??

    So I rechecked in the product description about material and it's saying metal, but I assume that that's only for the frame. I can't seem to find what material the actual pool is made out of, but I'll keep searching. EDIT: So it turns out that the material is PVC. Will this affect the fish...
